This is our third stay at Topsail Hill. Absolutely LOVE this place. Every other place is just a campground. This is just an excellent place to stay. Kid friendly. Adult friendly. Bring a bicycle. Lots of trails. Bring a flashlight for night bicycle rides. They also have a tram to take you to the beach and back if you don't have a bicycle or don't want to walk. Several bathroom locations. Big bathhouse that is air conditioned. Big laundry room with several washers and dryers that work nicely. I don't have one bad thing to say about Topsail. Its a nice, relaxing place to stay. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

This was our 4th stay at Topsail and once again it delivered. Sites were level and most where shaded from the heat of the day. The beaches were perfect and water was clear as a bell. The trolley service from the campground to the beach helped a lot. Just wish they could come up with a way to drop you off a little closer to the beach. The board walk to the beach is a pretty good haul but its worth it to not have a real crowded beach to relax on. I would have given it a 10 but there was some construction on some of the sites that was noisy around 8am in the morning. They are tearing up some of the sites that the roots have busted the concrete. Hard to fuss about it when they are just taking care of the campground to make it the best stay possible with nice sites. All in all it was great trip and great stay. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Just finishing a 3 night camping trip in our Pop-up Tent and having a great time.

PROS

-Paved sites

-Lights at each site (little 5' tall globes)

-Quiet

-Sites not too close together and with buffer foliage between them

-Feel safe letting the kids ride around the loop freely

-Pool!

-VERY pretty and bike friendly

-Bathrooms at the beach

CONS

-No fire pits

-Showers a little cramped and need some hooks (other than that they were fine and clean)

-Can't drive to beach (5 min bike ride or about a 15-20 min walk)...they do have a very nice and accommodating tram every 30 minutes

-Getting around campground is a little confusing till you get used to it

We stayed at site 142 and would pick this site again in a heartbeat. It's 4 sites down from the bathhouse and is in a great loop. I'd recommend this loop over other loops.

This park is wonderful for biking. I'd suggest bringing a bike trailer of sorts for carrying all of your stuff to the beach. The road to the beach is very scenic and is not accessible to cars. On the way to the beach if you stay straight on the road there's a beautiful 1 mile ride to a lake...highly recommended. We chose to hike to the beach from the lake. It was about a 20 min hike but quite pretty and we had the beach all to ourselves for a mile in either direction.

If you're into tent camping they have a unique option for tents. There's a loop with parking and each tent site is 10-30 yards off of the street in the woods so each site is private. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Tent Trailer.

This was our 3rd stay at Top Sail. We love it here. Lots of biking trails and if you don't want to bike down to the beach, there is a very convenient and friendly trolley. The only thing I regret is that we picked out several sites we really liked, but the park is so popular that you generally cannot get any of those sites because obviously we aren't the only ones who liked them. Spots in the newer section are the best, but spots in the older section are much shadier. We will definitely go back again and again. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Plan on spending about twice the amount of time you might expect to drive into Destin. Going down Road 30A beside the campground offers public beaches and several interesting looking restaurants. Walmart and Publix close by. Bring your bike!

This was our third stay at Topsail. The State of Florida doesn't seem to be willing to spend much money on the roads, but it's still a nice place to camp, especially with good friends.

The price,especially for Florida Seniors, is very affordable.

The bathhouses and laundry are very handy and clean.

The swimming pool was nice, but it had too many kids in it, not all behaving.

The beach is close by, but involves a rather long walk on the boardwalk to get there. Trams runs from the campground to the boardwalk about every 30 minutes.

The only negatives were the tons of kids on bicycles riding around like maniacs after dark with no lights.

The other really disgusting thing was the dumpster, which reeked so badly that it made anyone within 50 feet of it nauseated. They really need to haul away the trash more frequently.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, particularly the tram drivers. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

There are two sections in this park, older and Palm Circle which has newer sites that are larger with more privacy. Lots of trees loaded with pine cones. Some sites in older part have cracked concrete pads but are generally adequate. There is a nice pool, small inland lakes for fishing. The beach and sand dunes are beautiful and are .7 miles walk from campground. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nature trails throughout park, lots of birding opportunities. Miles of bike path along 30A with plenty of great dining opportunities along the way. There is a Walmart about 2 miles away with Donut Hole across the highway (great donuts!)

Absolutely beautiful forested park with 100 ft pine trees. All sites are beautifully landscaped with level concrete pads surrounded by grass. Many hiking and biking trails within the park and outside the park. Beautiful boardwalk to the beach which is on what is known as "the emerald coast" due to the color of the sparkling clear ocean and white white sand beach. This is a state park so at least in March, the park rangers offered a once a week short guided hike. The only other activity we experienced was a once a week "house concert" where a local band entertains the guests. We were stunned at the quality of the wonderful bands we saw perform. This is definitely not to be missed. Shopping and restaurants are within very close distance. We will definitely return to this park again. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely state park located on beach front property. Trolley takes you to beach or ride your bike. No cars allowed on beach path.

Books out so call months in advance.

Although our site was not pull through, it was an easy back in.

Lots of bike paths, lakes for kayaking, shuffle board.

Close to shopping and Destin, Fl. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground with spacious sites and easy access. Level, concrete pads, but were in need of repair/replacement due to severe cracking, which required careful backing. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Eden State Park, which we enjoyed touring.

Excellent campground. We've been coming here many years and will continue. Easy in/easy out even with big rigs. Employees & volunteers keep the park in tip top shape. All sites are concrete with patios. They do need to work on some of the sites concrete pads as roots are causing breakage. Hard to get a site here so book early. Great hiking, biking and beach access. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to eat at Bayou Bill's Crab House. Some of the best seafood we have ever eaten.

Great park, sites are spacious and separated by beautiful landscaping. We were located near laundry building, and wifi was very good at this location. Paved bike trail leads to boardwalk over beautiful dunes to the clean expanse of white sand gulf beach; tram runs hourly to the beach boardwalk. Many hiking trails through pine forests. This park is the best of both worlds for nature lovers and convenience seekers. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Many restaurants, shopping, and 20 mile bike path on 30A.

This and very nice state park campground. It is divided into six sections which encompasses RV and tent sites, and cabins. There are three small ponds where fishing and canoes are allowed. Space depends on which site is chosen. Some sites are a bit closer to each other, but there is no sardine feel to them. Roads are paved, sites are concrete and fairly level. Each site has a picnic table. There is a camp store, but I didn' t use it. There are lots of tall trees in the CG, so if satellite signal is desired, you need to ask about that. The cable is good with just about ever channel you would want. I had no problem with the utilities to include voltage, but did not need to use the air conditioning. Beach access isn't all that far from the center of the CG. VZW 4G was jut average and occasionally only had 3G. WiFi OK but I was closer to the front of the park. This would definitely be on my return list. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping with many retail locations starts about 5 miles way on Highway 98. Although it is pricey, Stinky's restaurant is about 2 miles from the CG. It has excellent food and service.

This is a beautiful campground, not exactly the friendliest reception with Check-In. Our site was very nice but we immediately discovered that we had absolutely no internet connection and that the cable TV had only three oddball local channels. I called the office and they said that we had to be near the front office or near the General store to have Wi-Fi. As far as the cable TV reception was concerned, the park was in the process of going to a digital format and that our 2006 American Tradition would probably not have access to the digital channels because of the age of the TV’s. We left because we needed internet access because of our businesses. They never said anything about not having cable when we reserved our site. We discovered a "Hidden Gem" of a RV Resort across from Miramar Beach just five miles away. Be prepared … Getting to the beach is more than a chore even with bikes or waiting for the hourly Tram. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Our site was really nice. Wi-Fi is adequate but does not cover the entire park. When we hooked to the cable, we got plenty of channels but I never did figure out how to go directly from channel to channel just up or down. This state park is laid out beautifully. The bath houses differ because one was of the original campground and the other had been put in since being a state park. This a bike friendly park. With a paved trail to the ocean(tram hourly) it makes for easy access. Across from the park is a bike trail that runs along highway 30A for about 20 miles. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.
